New initiative debuts at Newcastle Mela this weekend
UNISON and Show Racism the Red have teamed up to produce a flyer which aims to counter some of the myths about immigration that both the union and the campaign come across regularly.
The flyer will distributed for the first time this weekend (Aug 25th-26th) at the Newcastle Mela.
The tone of the immigration debate in politics and in the media over the last 10 years has resulted in a situation where misconceptions about immigration are held by many and it is easy for people who are, or perceived to be, immigrants to be treated as scapegoats for a range of economic and social problems.
